Began as a sketch during relatively-idle lectures...and eventually developed into this: a high-speed, AI-controlled scout submersible. Indirectly referenced neic's Underwater for...well, the underwater colors. I had no visual access to the student center's marine aquarium at the time. :p

Interestingly enough, after I chose the base color scheme, this immediately reminded me of the Mars Daybreak anime; it's a rather unique series that features underwater mecha and profound pirates!

Done in PaintTool SAI.

Looks like something the Covenant might make.

You're right. The colors remind me slightly of the Covenant's Wraith tank.

Reminds me of a zoid. nice job, most of my drawings are born the same way this one was, idle sketches in class.

very cool, I like the design! Its simple and layered on the outside yet you give us a glimpse of the intricate detail underneath. great job!

HI Kevin. I like the design a lot and it is awesome to see you working in color too. I see a lot of people using paint tool SAI. Is there a MAC version I could try? I think I checked once and there was only PC :(

Unfortunately, an OS X version of SAI doesn't exist. D:

A way around it is to install Windows XP/Vista on your machine alongside Boot Camp (or VMWare or Parallel Desktop), and that's assuming you have an Intel-based Mac.
